Horizontal wells offer increased reservoir contact and generally deliver much higher levels of productivity than their vertical counterparts, but these performance gains come at a cost. Managing horizontal wells and understanding their interactions with the reservoir are extremely complex challenges for petroleum engineers and asset management teams. New diagnostics technology from TGT, specifically designed to assess flow in horizontal wells, can deliver a much clearer picture of well system behavior.
